Studies from Xi'anUniversity of Architecture and Technology Yield New Data on Low Dimensional Structures (Controlling the transport gap of wedge-shaped graphene nanoconstriction by strain)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Fresh data on Low Dimensional Structures are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Xi'an, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The Landauer transport theory is used to study the electron transmission of wedge-shaped graphene nanoconstrictions (WGNCs) under transverse strain. It is found that WGNCs have a transport gap decreasingly dependent on the strain."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Xi'anUniversity of Architecture and Technology, "Further analysis shows that the strain dependence of the transport gap origins from the sensitiveness of confined states to strain. And on this basis, an analytical formula of the transport gap as a function of transverse strain is obtained confirming the numerical results."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Our results suggest that WGNCs can be useful for the future graphene-based nanoelectromechanics."
